    Kumbeshwar Technical School: Carpets

    by josephescu Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Locally made carpets at fixed prices, this is a fair-trade business. The showroom is on the ground floor of the school.

    Carpets aren’t amazing, but feel free to ask as many questions as the pupils in the showroom are very friendly and ultimately you can find something interesting to buy.

    Patan Industrial Estate: arts & crafts

    by josephescu Updated Jan 28, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the southern part of Patan, 20 minutes walk from the Durbar square, Patan Industrial Estate doesn’t sound like a very promising place to shop for crafts, but there are a number of factory showrooms who sell carpets, wood and metal work. Even if they are aimed at group tourists, there is nothing to stop individual travellers having a wander around. Generally, there’s no pressure to buy.

    Closes at 6 pm.
